I'm an 18 year old HS senior who really doesn't have any friends or has ever had a gf. My supposed best friend just freaked out at me for telling a joke and he cancelled plans we had. Is college actually better than this? People sometimes talk to me, but other than that, I spend my days alone and never even get texts. Girls never pay me any mind, and I've been rejected or just flaked off every single time. I'm told I am handsome and I'm not socially autistic, it just makes no sense.
In short, can I anticipate better times when I start college?
Whether or not it's better, it will be new, and so will you be. No one there will know that you have been tagged by the HS kids as friendless - for all anyone knows, you're an Alpha.
The point is simply that you start with a fresh slate, and can try again to make friends without any of the baggage of the past.
Join clubs. A lot of them. I'm a senior as well, and I know that as soon as I get into college I'm joining every club related to my interest. Obviously, don't/try not to be socially autistic. Most freshman in college are just like you: (initially) friendless, nervous, etc. They leave all their high school friends behind and don't know anyone.
Hence why joining clubs are crucial to getting friends. Also, assuming you have a roommate, get close with them (if they're cool/not retarded). They might end up introducing you to their friends, thus expanding your social group.
Basically, if you don't do what >>16673503
said, you're good. In order to meet and befriend other people you have to put yourself out there. Good luck dude!
Don't worry about it, HS is a crap place. You're forced to be around people NOT OF YOUR CHOOSING for years. It's the worst.
In college, you have more freedom; and hopefully you will go to a school with variety. But it's still a closed system; the cliques are more complex and more varied, but it's still a dumbfuck place with cliques.
In a big city, nobody gives a shit about you, which gives you freedom to pursue your interests / people that really gel with you. They are out there, but maybe you only gel with a small % of people. With a lot of people, more % meeting someone you gel with.
Very true, I'm most likely going to a small private school, so I'm sure someone in my major will appreciate me. No one in my school really gives a shit what I think about, and I hardly even get to voice my opinion or talk. Not that I really care anymore though. Thanks.
